#43 – Fastball – “The Way” – (1998)

During the opening of the song as they scroll through radio stations, you can apparently hear three songs, but the one that stands out the most is Jewel’s “Foolish Games.” This song hit #1 on the Modern Rock chart – and deservedly so. The lyrics, “The road that they walk on is paved in gold/And it’s always summer, they’ll never get cold/They’ll never get hungry/They’ll never get old and gray” are great and the guitar has a very distinct sound to it. There were two other big singles from All the Pain Money Can Buy: the very popular but slower (and organ-heavy) “Out of My Head” and “Fire Escape.”
